Re: Storing Sun Dried Tomatoes

OK, so consensus - airtight container with an oxy absorber chucked in for good measure?

Storing Sun Dried Tomatoes

I'm just about to push the button on an order of herbs/spices etc. One of my items is 1kg of sun dried tomatoes. Question - what's the best way to store them and how long will they last? They aren't in oil BTW - they are actually dried!

Thanks peeps.

Holland and Barratt sell TVP mince.
Thank's... and soya chunks at £5.30 / Kilo.
Not too bad and maybe better when they have their next promo. I just wish I didn't hate their product naming enough to make me want to scream.
Product naming is really the least of considerations. ;)

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

I went to an asian meatshop a while back and they had TRS dried soya mince and also chunks. Which I mylared ;) That's my plan. Just a matter of finding some. Only Mozzer's list them and they had none in stock. Online prices are a bit daft. I'd aspire to pay less than a fiver a kilo. I only know of ...

Re: Storage for herbs etc

Depends on how much you have Itsy but airtight is the way ahead. We have 'ready use' herbs in a twirly rack thing but have a big tupaware type box full of the backup supplies. How big do the containers need to be ???? Weeeeeeeeeeellll....I bought 400g of some, which takes up a surprisingly large am...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

I get Sainsbugs home delivery ever week, and the last 2 weeks the prices have gone through the roof. So next week I'm trying Asda, got a big order coming (hopefully if in stock) of tins, tea, coffee, cocoa, cheese, butter and cooking oil. I went into my Sainsbury local today. TP has gone up from £3...

Storage for herbs etc

I've just ordered a load of dried herbs, spices and the like. Am wondering what's the best type of receptacle in which to store them. I picked up several airtight plastic storage containers in Sainsbury when they were reduced to almost nothing, but I only got three. :roll: Kilner? Clip top? Any thou...
